I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for belVita. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
As a mom it’s easy to get busy on school mornings, there are days I am rushing around getting kids breakfast, lunches, and whatever else, that I don’t have time to make breakfast for myself. Luckily I don’t have to worry about not having time to make something for myself anymore. belVita breakfast biscuits are the answer. belVita breakfast biscuits are a tasty breakfast alternative that I can grab and eat while I run around during the school morning rush.
I received two flavors to try, Mixed Berry and Oats and Chocolate.
They were both great, but my favorite was definitely the Oats and Chocolate. Here are some of the benefits of the belVita Breakfast Biscuits:
- 20% Daily Value of Fiber (contains 7 grams of fat per serving)
- 11 grams of Whole Grain per 50 gram serving
- Good Source of Energy Releasing B-vitamins
- No High Fructose Corn Syrup
- No Partially Hydrogenated Oil
- No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Sweetener
Paired with glass of milk it was a great way for me to have a pretty nutritious breakfast even when my time was crunched. As I get back in routine of our busy back to school time, I want all the help I can get. Thanks to these tips from Lifestyle Mom, Dana Hilmer I am getting a plan together to have a smoother school year. I’ve already started something similar to her to-do list suggesting and really need to focus on number 8 this year.
Easing Stress during the Busy Back to School Season
- It’s important to schedule down time for you and your family. Before signing your kids up for this year’s after-school activities, think about your family’s priorities and the impact each activity will have on your schedules.
- It’s just as important for you to have a tasty, healthy breakfast as it is for your kids. Perfect for eating on the go, belVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits come in two varieties, Mixed Berry and Oats & Chocolate, grab a banana and a latte and you’re good to go with nutritious morning energy.
- Take a little time each night to get organized for the following morning. By making lunches and selecting outfits before bed each night, you’ll free time each morning for other things.
- Be sure to keep healthy snacks in the kitchen for after-school snacking. Nuts, crackers and fruit are great to give kids right when they walk in the door to keep them from grazing on unhealthy snacks, or spoiling their appetites for dinner.
- Moms often complain about not having enough time for themselves, but when life gets busy, it’s even more important to carve out that time. Treat “me time” as a priority.
- Start a to-do list with three sections: the priority of the day for yourself, the priority of the day for your family and the priority of the day for your work. Start with these items, and only move on to other less important items once they’re done.
- Use Sunday nights to plan your dinners each week. If you take a few minutes to think about how you can creatively use the leftovers from one night to the next, you can create a full week’s worth of healthy, tasty dinners that your family will enjoy.
- Give yourself the freedom to say no without guilt. Activities or commitments that may not be right for your family are okay to decline. Saying NO gives you the permission to say YES to things that are important to you.
- Back-to-school season is also cold and flu season. You can keep your entire family healthy with these simple habits: eating well, getting enough rest and washing hands regularly.
- Create a network of support for yourself. This network looks different for everyone. Consider asking your partner and kids for support. They can be a great help with tasks you feel comfortable handing over.
Thanks to these tips and the belVita Breakfast Biscuits I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year. What are some of your tips to being better organized during the school year rush?
